I've been through a bunch, and the keepers are the earth drive, jrocket blue note tour, and voodoo labs sparkle drive. The latter two have blend knobs, and although they work differently the idea is t ...

I use the change often- smooth slow bends to Ab aren't as seamless as without the 1/2 stop. Sounds like people are having trouble keeping it tuned- I'd suggest verifying that your builder can give you ...

I, and most guitar and steel players I know, use a Flint for reverb and trem- great tones, set it and forget it, or tweak away.

Great questions-

For me, the most important element in a VP is how comfortable it is to physically use, and I'd urge you to try as many as you can- people like what works for them, end of story. The basic perceptible ...

Cool lick-wish I could help. I love his voice and style- Turner has so many perfectly executed fresh ideas in a very conservative musical world- I love that this made it through the final cut.

That probably speaks to where we live respectively- I'm in Nashville- if someone wants an organ sound they have many immediate 'real' options that do it better than me on steel. Same goes for steel so ...

A tc electronics sub'n up with a neo vent mini gets me close, but it's ultimately a question of phrasing, and avoiding a legato 'give'. Notably, I've never been asked for that sound professionally. Th ...

I love it for a specific sound. There's an internal pre-amp that can't be bypassed however- darkens the tone- if I'm using it I'll eq my amp differently. A lot of boost on tap- can do subtle and the o ...

That's all too much in the signal path. I don't use a volume pedal- changes the volume too much- I like a 2 inch George l cable, without the tone-sucking 1/4" ends attached, kept in its original ...
